Me & my boyfriend have just returned from an amazing holiday on the Britannia cruising the carribean, This was our first holiday together and we are both early 20s. We had read a lot of reviews before hand and didn't know what to expect! I honestly do not know what most people are moaning about as we cannot moan about one thing, apart from on sea days it's hard to get a sun lounger as most people reserve a lounger & don't even sit on it which we found frustrating. Most waiters are friendly but some are hard work, we did the freedom dining which was great we could eat in our own time. Do not let some of these reviews put you off, a lot of P&O passengers are spoils with other cruise ships. We flew on the Thomson Dreamliner which was great but do not expect free drinks as it was P&Os request that we had to pay for them which was a disappointment straight away for us.

The ship is beautiful and we had an inside cabin which was perfectly comfortable enough for the both of us right at the front so we did'nt experience the lack of stairs mid ship which my parents experienced as they where in the middle and I must admit it is ridiculous as you need a lift to go up/down 1 deck but there are rumours they are fitting some in the future. The entertainment team were great fun they did a few sail aways which we enjoyed and the shows in the Headliners theatre where fantastic, The Live lounge disco goes on until about 2am, it's ok but don't expect a nightclub! Pulse the house band where superb and put on some great shows. There are no daytime activities on sea days which I think the cruise needs as they can get boring. The retreat was not advertised at all but we heard it was £45 for the day and only 5 people per day, we would have liked to go in but wasn't even sure how to book it.

Most nights we were to tired to make it past 12! We went to the beach house & Sindhu which we would both highly recommend, for a small supplement the food was outstanding!
